World Series Wrap-Up

Wow, I'm VERY late on this, but here's a quick Series wrap-up, because it can really just boil down to a few basic points:

1. Papi's INSANE at the plate.
2. The Cardinals couldn't hit; the only breaks they got were Breslow throwing the ball into the stands and an obstruction call.
3. This season shows how valuable every coach is, not just the manager. Bringing back John Farrell, Terry Francona's pitching coach, who's been around most of this team through its success, proved to be a gold-star move. He made more than an immediate impact. This team went from worst to first in one season.
4. I knew the Cardinals were done after they lost Game 4. Jon Lester was in too much of a zone for Game 5 and the Cards weren't winning two on the road.

That is all. We have a long, cold, but hopefully successful winter ahead of I'm off to go negotiate Cano's contract.

'Till Next Time!
